Glastonbury 2015: Ticket Trauma

Glastonbury 2015: Ticket Trauma

…  just to clarify I overslept and didn’t get a ticket.

These days getting a Glastonbury ticket is like finding a golden ticket in your chocolate bar for Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Except you actually have to pay for them, and they don’t come cheap.

Every year Glastonbury decides to open ticket sales on a Sunday at 9am, why?! This is pretty much torture for anyone. Weekends are for lie – ins and don’t get me wrong I’m usually up and about at 9am but it’s the organisation required that really gets to me.

Organisation you ask? On this years re-sale my boyfriend and I had our laptops, our phones and several friends were helping us too. We had a Word document saved with each other’s details including registration number and postcode to speed up the process as quickly as possible - IF we got through to the sales page. It was pretty intense but we got there in the end. Result. For those of you who are avid Glastonbury go-ers you are probably nodding you head right now – you know the drill.

For this year’s ticket sale; I thought the effort, stress of my page-refreshing skills (AND waking up so early on a Sunday) just wasn’t worth it. In just less than half an hour co-organiser Emily Eavis announced tickets were sold out. That’s it, all gone. Game over. But not all hope is lost. Or is it? I know that come June next year I will get serious FOMO.

Reasons to be cheerful….
• Chances are it will rain
• There will be mud…
• … and no showers
• The toilets are HORRENDOUS
• You have to queue for everything
• You pay £5.50 for sweet potato fries and convince yourself they were worth it

These reasons literally rolled off the tongue and I’m sure if I really had to think about it, it would be an endless list. Oh yes and one more – you can watch Glastonbury in the comfort of your own home, in bed, on the sofa, somewhere a lot more comfortable than a wet, crowded field.

After all this moaning I’m off to research a European festival with guaranteed sunshine and a luxurious villa to retreat to at the end of the night. Any ideas?


I really might not be able to resist the Glasto re-sale in April though…..
